Luang Prabang, Laos. Every morning at dawn, Buddhist monks walk down the streets collecting food alms from devout, kneeling Buddhists, and some tourists. They then return to their temples (also known as wats) and eat together. This procession is called Tak Bat (Making Merit). Here a young boy eats some of the rice that the monks have dropped in his basket as he sits outside his house.
